Measuring weight of meat for intakes - cooked or uncooked? + Relevance of hunger
I've been eating over 150g protein by 2:30pm last few days, and have been hungry every 2hrs max, I'm only planning on eating 200g/day, (80kg, 2g/kg bw is only 160g protein) On a bulk, and this coincided with 400g carbs by 2:30pm as well. I am working long hours as a PT, so this may have an effect (yesterday was 15hrs, wednesday will be the same)
But, I measure my chicken UNcooked. 1kg from butcher, cook it all up, portion out.
Am I actually having less than I should, or am I just a really hungry bastard lately?
Which brings me to my 2nd point - Hunger. Do I listen to my body and eat whenever Im hungry on a bulk, even if it means going way over planned/expected intakes or stick to the plan?
Oats/yoghurt + shake <<< 5:30am
Chicken/rice/avocado <<< was completed by 2:30pm
6 Eggs + 2pc Bread
Hello slip. What part of the chicken are you eating, and what is your intended daily caloric intake set at? I'd add that the sites I use to figure my intake offer different nutritional results according to how it was prepared if that helps.
Try PM'ing Jodi ... she knows of a better site than fitday. I started with fitday and don't wanna move now but I recall her mentioning a few months ago that she knew of a site that was better than fitday for some reason so maybe you can give that a shot just for S&G's.
It was an eye opener when I first came here and began comparing the things I had "learned" from local trainers and doctors to what was common knowledge with the locals at IM. LOL ... this is a weeeeee bit cheaper too. How much is an elite membership these days? You'll get your diet tweaked out in no time slip.
Meanwhile keep up the good work slip you sound very dedicated ... that's good to see.
Yeah, still got a lot to learn, but the foods I eat are pretty set up, love it all, and don't really cheat/drink etc. Its just making sure I'm eating the right amounts now, and getting into carb cycling, loading up etc
Thanks for going to the effort of setting up the pm hotlink bonecrusher, much appreciated mate.
Interestingly, I've still put on a number of kg's. Probably would have stayed a bit leaner with more protein/fat and less carbs, see how we go next cycle. Still have visible abs after packing on over 2kg in 2wks. Woot!
